Best Thing You Ever Ate - Toronto

Each city has some mind blasting, unforgettable, unimaginably good dishes like :

New York Levain's Chocolate Cookies and El Quinto's Uni Baguette,

San Francisco Sotto Mare's Cioppino, and

Montreal Pied de Cochon's Plogue A Champlain,

just to name a few.

But what is the most mind blowing thing you've ever eaten in TO ?

          Actually that was my mistake -- I did mean Hoof Cafes tongue sandwich.

            I would have to say that it was the Sticky Toffee Pudding at Beast.

                Second the veal from california sandwiches

                1. re: TheDewster

                  Based on these comments, I gave the veal sandwich a try.

                  You're kidding right? A piece of veal so thin that you can read throught surrounded by a fried batter. Edible, but that's about all.

                  1. re: evansl

                    Which location? The original and the one on the Queensway are quite generous with the veal.

                    1. re: Davedigger

                      Claremont street location - hot veal sandwich fully loaded - that's what I'll ask for as my last meal when I'm outta time on death row!
